Poppy Jasper and Silver Overlay Shadowbox Pendant

Poppy Jasper and Silver Overlay Shadowbox Pendant

This hollow form pendant is made of hand-punched fine silver with fine silver overlay and Guadalupe Poppy Jasper.

Poppy Jasper gets it’s name from orbicular patterns resembling poppies. This piece has bursts of golds and green surrounded by reds and deep brown.

Gorgeous, deep color.

Overlay is a traditional Native American technique often found in Hopi and Navajo jewelry designs.

Guadalupe poppy jasper is from New Almaden, California. The mine it comes from is now closed and this variety of poppy jasper is considered extinct. This stone was mined at least 3o years ago. It is a collectible and only exists in private stashes. Very rare.

This piece is 2 1/2 inches long by 3/4 inches wide at the widest point and 1/4 inch deep. Absolutely one-of-kind hollow form piece, from the stone to the cut-out design on the front. Signed on the back ~ Matagi Sorensen.

Hanging silver disc earrings have a deep earthy quality due to the rawness of the hand-texturized process. The metals are left unpolished to further enhance their natural beauty. Over time, the copper will deepen in color. Each earring is one-of-a-kind due to their hand-crafted creation.

Modern, southwestern, elegant.

Approximately one inch diameter. Earring wires are sterling silver. Signed on the back.

Tear-Shaped Copper Top and Silver Pendant

Copper Dip with SilverTear-Shaped Copper Top and Silver Pendant

Highly polished copper and silver balance one another as the warmth of rich copper softly dips in with its concave shape with cool silver acts as copper’s base. This piece is very tactile, the shape is inviting to touch.

The rich reds and purples of the copper are drawn out by highly heating it. I never know exactly how the copper will look before I heat it, though that is the beauty of the process. This once reminds me of the rich colors of a southwestern sunset.

Hollow form, hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind. Signed on the back. Approximately 3/4 inch tall by about 1/2 inch wide and 1/4 inch deep. Shown with a 7-strand black omega necklace.

Caribbean Blue Bowl Slider Pendant with Copper and Silver

A deep red copper bowl contrasts with a splash of vibrant sea blue. Copper nestles in silver and depresses inward creating a bowl shape. Sides and the back of this hollow form pendant are silver.

The blue enamel ripples across copper, and copper peeks out along the edges of blue. A refreshing jolt of color.

No two pendants of this style are alike. Each piece has its own color and texture variation due to the hand-crafted process.

Approximately 1/2 inch diameter, 1/4 inch deep. Hand-crafted, hollow form. Signed on the back. Shown here on a 5-strand 18″ black omega necklace.
